1. A misty murky early morning flight over Leybourne Lakes.

    Leybourne Lakes Country Park is near Snodland, in Kent, England. The park, which opened in 2004, was created from disused gravel pits that have been flooded and landscaped to make fishing and wildlife lakes.

    The 93 hectares (230 acres) of lakes now provide a peaceful location for wildlife and birdwatching whilst also allowing watersports enthusiasts the opportunity to windsurf, canoe and kayak in the man-made lakes. Diving also takes place in one of the lakes. Around the lakes are a series of woods and gentle trails, popular with dog walkers and recreational walkers.

  2. Mote Park is a 440-acre (1.8 km2) multi-use public park in Maidstone, Kent. Previously a country estate it was converted to landscaped parkland at the end of the 18th century before becoming a municipal park. It includes the former stately home Mote House together with a miniature railway, pitch and putt golf course and a boating lake. A ground of the same name within the park has also been used as a first-class cricket ground by Kent County Cricket Club.

    The house is set in a 450 acres (1.8 km2) park maintained by Maidstone Borough Council with support from the Mote Park Fellowship, a group of volunteers.

  3. The lovely seaside village of St Margaret's is set in the heart of White Cliffs Country. It first appeared in the Domesday Book as "Sancta Margharita" with continuing history revolving around its location. From late Victorian times, it developed as a holiday resort and retreat for the well to do, amongst which Lord Byron, Ian Fleming and Noel Coward all stayed or lived here.

    Today, the village and bay offer an inspiring backdrop to spectacular countryside and coastline and to a wide range of activities. If you love history, discover The Frontline Britain Trail - a 4 mile circular route - learn about the role of St Margaret's during the Second World War.
    The narrow winding road to the bay leads to a car park facing the beach and The Coastguard - Britain's nearest pub to France.

    Paths from the bay lead up to the cliff top (be prepared for lots of steps) where you can take a walk and admire the stunning views. Ponies roam the cliff top so don’t be surprised if you come across one or two. The cliff path leads to the Dover Patrol Memorial, and beyond is a fabulous walk to Kingsdown.

  4. Sailing Barge Ena is among the boat wrecks
    currently decaying in a barge graveyard in the River Medway at Hoo.

    The historic vessel Ena was sailed out to Dunkirk on 31st May 1940 to help with the evacuation but her crew were forced to abandon her in deep waters. British troops without any sailing barge experience were able to board Ena and sail her back to the UK.

  5. Early morning flight around Fort Hoo.

    Fort Hoo is on an island in the middle of the river Medway. It is identical to Fort Darnet on the neighbouring island.

    Hoo Fort, like Fort Darnet, was built on the recommendations of the 1859 Royal Commission. It is located on Hoo Island covering Pinup Reach, the inner navigable channel of the River Medway. Hoo Island sits to the south of the Hoo Peninsula and is within the parish of Hoo, Kent.

    Originally designed for two tiers of guns mounted in a circle, with a boom strung between Hoo Fort and Fort Darnet, there were many problems with subsidence, and after extensive cost overruns the forts were completed in 1871 with a single tier of eleven 9-inch rifled muzzle-loading guns, and no boom. Each gun was mounted in an individual casemate with the heavily armoured firing port.

    The forts were disarmed before the First World War. In the Second World War, the fort was used as observation posts, with platforms and pillboxes built on top. The fort is still in fair condition. It is a Scheduled Monument and is owned by Medway Ports.
